Ask any racing expert to name five young drivers who will make a lasting positive impact on the sport of racing and the name 'Sondi Eden' will most likely be on every list. "She has the rare talent to drive both aggressive and clean" noted one race announcer, "and the impressive thing is she will only continue to get better." A gifted athlete, who received a full basketball scholarship to college, Sondi has taken her skills to tracks across America where she has earned a reputation as one of the most talented and intelligent drivers in racing competition today.

Concerned as much about her character as she is about winning races, Sondi has gained the respect of fellow drivers, fans, media and sponsors. "I have been to several of her races", noted Indianapolis Motor Speedway Network announcer Howdy Bell, "and I have yet to find anyone who has anything negative to say about Sondi."

In a sport dominated by males, Sondi has set a number of milestones for her gender:
  • 1st and only female to race sprint cars at legendary Salem Speedway (Finished 4th)
  • 1st and only female to win NAMARS Rookie of the Year
  • 1st and only female to win USAC Championship in 53-year history of USAC
Still, there are more "first's" to be accomplished and Sondi has never been the type of person to stop and reflect on her accomplishments. There are too many races yet to be run and each day is a new challenge. Challenges are what Sondi lives for.
